Starbuck's Returns to Ybor City
For those who have missed their Starbuck's morning kick start we have great news!!! There is now an official Starbuck's at HCC, located on the corner of 9th & 15th street inside the newly remodeled Cyber Cafe. One of the best kept secrets in Ybor City are the 2 restaurants at HCC. Both have great food at very reasonable prices. Fresh bagels for only $1.50 and of course the best French fries in town too!
Food Truck Thursday in Ybor City
Every Thursday from 11AM - 2 PM it's time for a Cuban sandwich and decadent cupcake! Located on the corner of 12th street & Palm Ave next to HCC is Michelle Faedo's On the Go food truck. For years, we have been raving about Michelle's Crab balls! After they sold the restaurant they started the food truck. Now Michelle's has won the honor of the BEST Cuban Sandwich in the State of Florida!!! What would go great with a crab ball & Cuban sandwich? A fantastic cup cake from the Pink Food Truck we all know as "The Cuppin Cake". Pick up extra cup cakes to take back for all your friends. This includes MC FILM FEST PLEASE!

You Can Not make This Stuff Up!!
We have this good friend Mike, who is almost as crazy as us! He was a famous antique dealer who closed his antique store and moved it into this home. Then, he down sized but didn't get rid of anything!!! So when we were invited to his birthday, we couldn't think of what to get him. Then it hit us, he was having a fancy birthday party at his home so..... We had a head shot of a famous porn star that had just been in the store. We took the photo and autographed it. "To Mike, Thanks for the best sex ever, next time it's free! Love, Colt" Then we put it into a Elegant Silver picture frame and during the party left it on the back of the toilet in the guest bathroom. The next day called faking he was upset & said "Only you b**ches would do that!" We all laughed and the photo is still there years later. LOL Must have been the best every birthday gift ever....just sayin.
